About the performance:

Mira is a famous TV person who hosts a weekly entertainment program called “In bed with Mira”. The guests of TV show are mostly celebrities who are invited in bed with Mira and to answer her questions in this unusual pattern. The stage of the performance is a TV show panel and there’s a feeling that the audience is attending a TV show recording.

The show starts with Mira inviting her guest, when a young man from the audience grabs a gun, rushes to the stage and holds Mira hostage. Young man demands to be aired on TV live, handed  money and guaranteed that he will leave the building of TV company securely along with Mira.  Leo - the producer of TV show is communicating with Mira through headphones, and is trying to assure her that all the demands will be met and Mira will stay unharmed in this incident.

However, throughout the course of the performance the audience finds out that this whole ordeal was created by the producer himself, who was trying to boost the popularity of a show which as he himself says to Mira was doomed to fall as she was losing her popular appeal.

The plot of performance offers another twist as the hired terrorist turns out to be aggressive himself and states that it is indeed an attack on a TV host and that he is capable of doing what he had promised, if he is not given money.

The audience is dazzled with incredibly dynamic rhythm of the performance and unpredictable scenario, which tries to shed the light on a question of who the true hostage is.
